|Barbarix - Lucifer's Happy Hunting Ground [NTT051] - Barbarix|
Bromsgrove/UK brings us Steven Crompton, who has been producing as Barbarix for a considerable time, encompassing a multitude of electronic styles. The rhythmic tracks on his first (!) ep contain some very subtle dubstep (greatly soothing underlying bass) and idm influences, while the more abstract scenes (such as the title track) present a dark world of supernatural impressions. All wrapped up with an ear for production and attention to detail...

|Takeshi Nakamura - Strange Animals [NTT046] - Takeshi Nakamura|
Takeshi Nakamura, who's been making quite the name for himself on various netlabels (Zymogen, Digital Biotope, Play-Code, ...), can certainly be relied upon should you be looking for avant-garde sonic investigations. "Strange Animals" is made of curious harmonics that were meticulously assembled through what i would guess are alien Max/msp or Reaktor patches. The tracks' structures are at first hard to identify as most of the rhythms are quite unorthodox, until (in some cases) a more familiar rh...

|Antanas Jasenka - Metal Alloy [NTT056] - Antanas Jasenka|
Antanas Jasenka is a longtime composer in the field of experimental electronica. After his Sonic Machine (NTT036), which got released on Entity 3 years ago, he has now put a new work at your disposal. The evolution in both sound and atmosphere is blatantly obvious, and i think it's fair to say that Antanas has really outdone himself this time. "Metal Alloy" consists of 5 expansive tracks, each featuring exquisite sound design, while exhibiting a high degree of control and emotional depth...

|¬[d] - Array of Detritus [NTT074] - ¬[d]|
¬[d] aka Darien Brito is an electroacoustic composer and audio/visual artist based in The Hague, Netherlands. From the very start of this EP, it's obvious that Darien masters and executes a unique sonic vision to excellent detail. Balancing personal expression with more universal soundscapes and peculiar hand-crafted noises, "Array of Detritus" is an honest, beautiful, dark and compelling place to reside...

|Dotkràz - Untitled [NTT027] - Dotkràz, m__, ps|
ps and m__ - the two hard working individuals behind the stellar Enough Records and Con-v - joined forces to create an intelligent melting pot of various musique concrete styles, which pretty much reflects the quality of their own brainchilds. In this unique cooperation they have constructed a polymorphic opus from just about any type of source material. It seems combinations of concrete vs electronic ambiences continue to find their way to Entity, and this one in specific sums the whole variety...

|Idle Sunder - Psygnosis I [NTT045] - Bogdan Dullsky, Idle Sunder|
Having worked closely with Bogdan Dullsky (Quest.Room.Project - see NTT043) on this 1st album of the Psygnosis trilogy, Idle Sunder has transcended the space drone boundaries they were once confined to, to visit a universe of remarkably visual minimal rhythms and manipulated instruments/recordings. All of the tracks contain a great diversity in both sound and style, while retaining a quite conceptual atmosphere which holds ground in between existential and psychological ideas that are sure to be...

|Takeshi Nakamura - Music For 14 Years Old [NTT061] - Takeshi Nakamura|
Takeshi Nakamura is back with a new ep called "Music For 14 Years Old", and the result is quite an unexpected one, portraying a mix of cold electronic glitch as well as warmer influences that add a more accessible quality to his style. Takeshi also injected some acoustic percussion and granulized voices into his reknown mix of finely processed bleep tones and other such noises, making all of this add up to a charmingly entrancing ep that will most likely have you returning to it...

|Hazcauch - Fitzhugh [NTT066] - Hazcauch|
Back in Japan, and this time we meet with programmer / sounddesigner Hideki Masatani aka Hazcauch! His Fitzhugh ep features 4 tracks that wage a battle between heavy electronic percussion, lush ambient scapes and raw, destructive glitch effects. http://flavors.me/hazcauch http://www.entity.be/entity

|PlanetZoo - Life, This Strange Discharge [NTT057] - PlanetZoo|
PlanetZoo - the braindeadchild of arguably mentally deranged composers Samuel Glazer (Zoogoo) and Anthony Colas (Planet Aldol) - was not so long ago destined to release on Entity and (thankfully) have yet again put everything aside to work on the continuation of what is already becoming a compendium of hyperrealistic yet surreal and psychedelic auditory sceneries. This new incarnation brings a horrific tale of dark, virtual entities, bearing a story that will keep you puzzled as you relive each ...

|Ryukau - Selected Rooms [NTT064] - Ryukau|
For the 64th release, we'd like to present Takamitsu Endo's RYUKAU project. "Selected Rooms" is an aural treat that breaks into the extremes of noisy and glitchy sound art, one of those things the Japanese seem to have a knack for. After all these years a release like this is long overdue on Entity. Play it loud and brace yourself!! Huge thanks to Nick Nenov for providing another stunning piece of cover art.

|Rekombinacje - Soczewki Grawitacyjne [NTT073] - Rekombinacje|
Hailing from Poland, mister Marian Marianski brings us his version of a "Gravitational Lens", a deep-scope reflection on galaxy clusters far beyond our current reach. Sonically dense and meticulously controlled, spacious atmospheres interweave with sharp glitches and sub-ranged feedback echoes. A subtle yet wide spectrum of sonic entities is revealed. A welcome addition to the family. http://www.entity.be

|.at_on + v4w.enko - Pack [NTT060] - .at_on, v4w.enko, aiuto|
A very finetuned atmospheric minimal glitch collaboration by Ukrainian artists .at/on and v4w.enko. This release also includes a number of audio visuals by v4w.enko and aiuto, which puts the music in the context of smooth colorful glitch designs, combining hardware sound with max/msp signal processing. The result is a strangely effective, stunning collection of warm experimental glitch ambient that incites with minimum effort.
